Dr. Daphne Miller from the University of California tells us that Indigenous Peoples who eat diets of their ancestors are immune to many chronic diseases. Foods that were traditionally grown together are also in compliment in our body and give us whole proteins. Indigenous diets are also suited to local environments: farmers farm in a cycle, use different kinds of seeds, conserve water, engaging practices that are not only sustainable and organic, but also regenerative.
